BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A former employee of the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office is charged with federal program theft. The charge against Mandy Nicole Miller, 44, of Baton Rouge was made through a bill of information.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, “From July 2018 to September 2022, while employed at the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, Miller stole cash paid for traffic tickets and hid the thefts by recording fraudulent journal entries in the Sheriff’s Office accounting system.”

Miller is accused of illegally using official funds totaling more than $150,000.

Earlier this year, the Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s Office provided details about two members of the West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office who allegedly pocketed thousands of dollars for personal use.
